Hello Kelly,

Was surfing the internet on a cold Sunday afternoon and found your post. I believe I can shed some light on your query (if nobody else has since your post is nearly a year old).

Everett (Tick), Mable, Mike, Donald (Donny), and Robert (Bob) Fesler are the offsprings of Charles Fesler and Ida Norris. All are deceased, with the last being my grandfather Donald in 2004.

Everett and Mildred had a son - Harold who I believe currently lives in Zanesville. My dad still is quite close with him.

My father Jim (James M) Fesler lives in Ft. Worth Texas with his wife and my mother Hoa Kim Fesler (Lam). Jim's father was Donald Leland Fesler, brother of Everett and married to Eloise Marie Fox.

Jim Fesler has three offspring - Robert T Fesler (Katy, TX), Donald Douglas Fesler -ME! (Arlington, VA), and Maria Elena Fesler (McIntyre) (Keller, TX).

My understanding is that my Fesler line can be traced back to Laurence Fesler who imigrated to the states from France. In fact, when cleaning out my grandparent's attic in Ohio - I stumbled upon Laurence's naturalization papers dated September 28, 1857 which were issued in Coshocton so it does give some credence to all those stories I heard growing up.

If you want to know more - you should contact Dwight Fesler in Coshocton. He's the son of Mike Fesler and a big Fesler geneology buff. I'm sure he can sort you out. Best of luck to you.

Doug
